    LOL! I agree! I am having trouble with internet. I actually have a 64 bit Vista Os for now, and the wifi adaptor i bought is not working well on it. So no internet on it. I am posting from my laptop now. SO managed to find an old cpu z fossilized in my hard drive in some deep corner Thanks!

    3500$ Rendering/Gaming Rig build

    Hey buddz, So last weekend I got all the parts shipped to my home and I sat down for a few hours and built the system. Well What more can I say, take a look at the system. Thanks a bunch for all the help. You guys really saw me through System is rock solid after 24 hours of cpu and gpu tests. I am running on thr GTX 295 now, if the need arises will go for a quadro. Regards, Torqueguru.
  11. Hi buddz, I have a spare 8800gtx 768 MB card lying with me. I was wondering if using it as a physics processing unit would yeild any better results. What do you guys think? I had long back used a 9600gt as a physics processor for an 8800gtx, and performance had actually dropped instead of rise. Hence this question. Regards, Torqueguru.

    RAID 5 on EVGA X58 SLi

    Which is exactly my point! Then why the hell do they list RAID 5 in their support list, when they have only 2 SATA ports for the Jmicron chip. Weird.

    RAID 5 on EVGA X58 SLi

    I wanted to set up RAID 5 on my EVGA X58 motherboard, with 3 hard drives each 1.5 TB each. The Issue is, that only the Jmicron JMB363 chip supports RAID 5. And also, RAID 5 needs 3 disks. But the Jmicron JBM363 chip in this board has only 2 connectors for SATA disks. This is an extract from the manual. "There are nine (9) internal serial ATA connectors and one (1) e-SATA on this motherboard. Connection points SATA0 - SATA5, are controlled by the South Bridge Chipset. Connection points SATA8 - SATA9, are controlled by the JMicron JMB363 chip. These connection points support RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 0+1 and JBOD configurations. SATA6 and SATA7 are controlled by the JMicron JMB362 chip." I am confused. I tried calling up EVGA, it sayd that t he wait time is 1 hour and 15 minutes! Can you believe that! Damn! So help awaited on how to set up RAID 5 on my array. Regards, Torqueguru.
